requiring all voters to show photo i.d. in order to vote. a measure that opponents of that law say would suppress the vote, particularly among minority, elderly and young voters. joining me now, msnbc's joy reid. joy, michael steele said, look, you can't say this on monday and pass these kinds of things. this is part of what's alienating those voters. >> absolutely. apparently, the governor's and legislatures out there in the world didn't get the memo from nice reince priebus. the problem with these laws, lawrence, they are far more likely to disenfranchise black and hispanic youth, something like 72% of african-americans who go to vote are asked for i.d. something like 760% of hispanics, but half of white younger people who go to vote. so you're disenfranchising people directly and black and hispanic youth are far more likely to report not voting because either they don't have the i.d. or are perceived or think they don't have the i.d. so on one hand, we're going to speak more nicely to minorities, but as a back up, we're going to make it harder for them to vote. >> and joy, there's ten
? if you guys get over the racism, it is the law. get over it. the people who killed the people interact, it is the law. -- in iraq. host: what is the affordable care act have to do with racism ? caller: it has a lot to do with racism, taking her -- taking care of people -- we should cut the healthcare for the congress. see how they like it. we will move onto clay in biloxi, mississippi. caller: good morning. disabilityd and on after working 14 years, the five years of court reporting. we had a bombardment of advertisements for simple move -- healthcare for medicare. we find it replaces the medicare policy we currently have. after the deadline passed for the supplements, humana stopped advertising in mississippi. you can't get in touch with humana. the bureaucracy is just going to increase and as leaving the poor tople at a disadvantage correct and try to make reasonable choices for their healthcare. thank you for taking my call. host: a statement put out yesterday by the office of house democratic -- released following the statement today in recognition of the third anniversary of the a

mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west and in the south that gun control has always been a big libertarian issue, that we have this very
voted against the key provision in the the president's law feeling politically anxious about it. >> you will remember the white house's rational for the medical device tax was it would help the companies because with obamacare, it would increase hospital demand for these devices, there by increasing these company's profits and this was a way for them to give back a little bit. is that argument no longer valid? >> well, it's certainly in doubt as the implementation of the law falls further into debt. that was the same argument that the president made when he did the deal. he cut a deal with health insurance providers that said, look, you're going to give something up front as your profits go down a bit, but we're going to force with the mandate, compel people by law to buy your product so you're going to make so much in the long run you shouldn't kick up too much fuss and got a deal with them. the problem with the medical device people, they're not nearly as big an industry as the health insurance industry. they can't necessarily afford to take the kind of hit. at 3, almost 4% tax, i thi

that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-what high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. and if we could get a ban on high-capacity magazines, we could really do something to stop some of these crazy, mass shootings. >> it's all about 60 votes. to
court is hearing arguments over critical case that could influence voting laws across the country. they're considering an arizona law that tries to keep undocumented immigrants from voting. the voter-approved proposition 200 requires all state residents that they show proof of u.s. citizenship before registering to vote. a federal appeals court blocked that provision saying it violated federal voting laws. four other states, alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee have similar voter registration requirements. and another 12 states are considering such legislation. i'm joined by congressman raul grathala, a congressman from arizona. lawyers from arizona are asking to reinstate that 2004 law requiring residents to show one of the following, a driver's license issued after 1996. a birth certificate or a passport. now, supporters are saying that current law isn't strong enough, only require aring one to promise basically under oath that they are a u.s. citizen. what's your thought about this? >> well, you know, and all this after i think after associated press found numerous investigations i
of justice ought to enforce the law. >> boehner said he wants a real background check on everyone. right after the interview, cnn told us what the speaker really meant to say. >> i had to go back to his office and say, is he coming out in favor of an improved background check system. no, he supports the background system that exists to be implemented better. >> now, grieving parents are joining the vice president to demand better of boehner and the best of congress. >> quite honestly, i'm really ashamed to see congress doesn't have the guts to stand up and make a change and put a ban on these type of weapons and universal background checks. >> what matters is people, leaders with moral courage. >> it must be awful being in public office and concluding that even though you might believe you should take action, that you can't take action because of the political consequence you face. what a heck of a way to make a living. i mean it sincerely. >> let's turn to daniel hernandez of people for the american way and john. welcome to the show. >> thanks for having us. >> mr. hernandez, tell us wh

(vo)while law enforcement in california was cracking down police in new york were told to go in the other direction. in september the police commissioner issued this order "a crime will not be charged to an individual who is requested or compelled to engage in the behavior that results in the public display of majijuana". that trick that hakeem jeffery showed us... >>they take something out, now its in public display, the handcuffs go on, these young men are run through the system. (vo)it's no longer allowed and never should have been. which means that if many of the stories we heard are true, "searched me found a bag of weed" "he took it out of my back pocket" "they didn't recover it from my hand, they recovered it from my cigarette pack" (vo)most of the people we met should never have been arrested. once again we asked the nypd to talk to us and again they declined. it wasn't surprising; if we'd learned anything, it's that america's marijuana laws are a conflicted, unequally enforced mess, where one state's entrepreneur is the federal government's f
. if congress passes a law which taxes wealth -- that is a bank deposit -- yes, it could happen here. in practice, it will not happen here. >>ainsley: it will be a riot. >> plus america can print its own money. you can print dollars to get out of trouble if you're in extreme situations. cyprus uses the euro, somebody else's currency. >>brian: the problem is this is the deal they cut in order to survive. the e.u. gave them this money and said this is some of the austerity things you must do. >> cyprus is bankrupt. it needed an extra $13 billion to keep going. the europeans said we'll give you the money, but you've got to give some of it back from the deposits of everybody in the country. so they're going to take money out of your private bank account in order to pay for this bailout. that breaches a very important principle. until now if you're in a bankrupt country, the bondholders, the people who lent the country money, they were the losers. now it's the citizens directly. >>ainsley: they haven't done it yet, so these people are running to the a.t.m.'s getting their money out. >> bu

(laughter) see, i told you. the factor tip of the day. one of the most common phrases in the english language is i'm sorry. we all say it because we all do things that aren't good. the problem is it's not enough to say i'm sorry, and children especially need to learn that. if you do something bad to another person, you need to make amends as well as apologize. so, here is the factor tip of the day, think back over the last few weeks and months and if you've hurt somebody, even if you've apologized, try to make it up to them in a concrete way. and going forward, i'm sorry should always be accompanied by some form of restitution. that will automatically make you a person with class. factor tip of the day. and that's it for us tonight. please check out the fox news factor website is different fro
2012 and there was this grand plan to you know, institute voter i.d. laws and laws that were terrible. so since they couldn't steal the vote then now, they're going to try to earn the vote the right way. second, i think they have to speak to the issues that matter. they have to start sounding like people who are accepting of all americans of all walks of life with different ideals. everybody doesn't have to be cut from the same cloth and doesn't have to be this template model of what a republican should look like. >> given what angela just said, the tea party has really come the party at certain levels or hijacked it. how do they stand up to the tea party without losing a serious purchase on the conservative almost here? conservatives are not identical with the tea parties. how do they make that distinction? >> i'm not sure they can. i think the tea party and the way that they have mobilized themselves scares everyone who is a current member of congress to death. because they're afraid that if they go too far to the center, they're going to be primary. so this is constant threat. by t
and senate to overhaul u.s. immigration laws. today speaker of the house john boehner called the house version a "pretty reasonable solution." the number of americans dying from alzheimer's disease has increased by 68% in the last decade. according to the alzheimer's association, one in three seniors have some form of dementia when they die, and the disease accelerates the progression of other life- threatening conditions. because alzheimer's has no cure or treatment to slow symptoms, a growing elderly population means dementia mortality rates will only continue to rise. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to gwen. >> ifill: pope francis formally took office today with a special mass and ceremonies. we begin with a report from james mates of independent television news in rome. >> it was among the ordinary pilgrims to st. peter's that pope francis started his day. it is common now for a pope to kiss babies-- less so for them to get out of the popemobile and walk over to give a blessing to a disabled person. inauguration mass at st. peter's square was less or nate than
law. >>> but we begin with a moment of deep frustration this week. after an assault weapons ban was dropped from senate legislation, while two top gun reform advocates continue to push for reform. in new york earlier today, vice president joe biden and new york city mayor michael bloomberg held a press conference with families of the sandy hook elementary school massacre. delivering a unified message to congress -- get some guts. >> it's time for the political establishment to show the courage your daughter showed. >> quite honestly, i'm really ashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up and make a change and put a ban on these types of weapons and universal background checks. >> congress just has to get some courage and it's up to us as americans and as fellow human beings to sort of give them that courage. >> mayor bloomberg urged concerned citizen to call their members of congress and tell them, this issue is a deal breaker to get their votes. as vice president biden pointed out, communication about these issues is also a big part of the problem. >> the ame
rights laws govern them. but the privacy laws permit them to make reasonable inquiry of their employees if the answer to the inquiry will help the business of the employer operate more efficiently. >>steve: this is scary because this means any company can do it. where do you draw the line? first they want to know how much you weigh, what your glow kos levels are. next they want to know are you a smoker? next do you drink coffee? >> i don't know how far this is going to go because this is the brave new world of obamacare kicking in. this is an unintended consequence or unrevealed consequence. >>alisyn: let me tell you what c.v.s. says their motivation is for doing this. a wellness review said colleagues know their key health metrics in order to take action to improve their numbers if necessary. is morethe wave of the personal responsibility in having to stop things like smoking and eating poorly if it's up to you. >> i don't think this is the wave of more personal responsibility. i think this is more corporate intrusion because the corporation has an interest in how healthy its employees

consent needs to begin much earlier, that they believed they were above the law, and that when they were documenting it, they didn't realize that what they were doing is creating evidence in a criminal case. they believed that because the coach had their backs, which suggests that this is a long-standing cultural issue, that absolutely nothing would happen to them. so instead of focusing on the victims' behavior, what we should be focusing on is how do we intervene in this culture that tells boys that they don't have to respect women as humans, and if they sexually humiliate young girls, absolutely nothing will happen to them. if there's anything we can learn from this one verdict, it is the fact that people need to understand what consent is and intervene in a toxic culture of mass cue lynnity. >> speaking about the toxic culture of masculinity, you of course spent a great deal of time away from the clamor trying to educate young women and young men about these issues. the mother of the victim actually delivered a statement in court to the defendants. she said in part, your decisions th
support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. >> while the announcement itself was less than shocking, it symbolized a much larger shift in public opinion. a new "washington post"/abc news poll released yesterday shows that public support for gay marriage is at an all-time high, 58% of americans support it. as do 81% of young adults. ten years ago, only 37% of americans supported same-sex marriage. but if the winds of change are blowing, some parts of the gop have yet to feel them. the same poll showed that only 34% of republicans support same-sex marriage, compared to 72% of democrats, and 62% of independents. and last week at cpac, the schism within the gop was thrown into sharp relief as brian brown, president of the national organization for marriage found himself voicing opposition to gay marriage in front of an empty room. memo to republicans and actually anyone on planet earth -- if you find yourself making an argument to a room full of empty chairs, it might be time to change your strategy. james, i want to go you first
hook happened, i just wanted to do something. >> yes. >> whether it was changing the laws to make it easier to commit people or making sure that background checks were better. what did you feel as a dad? >> oh, i mean, it was awful. and our hearts go out to those who are the victims of sandy hook and these other mass shootings. i would have hoped that the president would have focused on the bigger problem, you know, violence in our society. >> do you think background checks, improving background checks might be part of that? >> they should actually do a real background check on everyone. and maybe the department of justice ought to enforce the law. >> what the speaker meant by that i should say because i wanted to, i had to go back to his office and say is he coming out in favor of improved background checks? no. he supports the background check system that exists to be implemented better. what do you see happening realistically with guns? can anything get through the house? >> well, we know something could get through the senate. i think a ban on straw purchases might in fact be
be for the supreme court to strike down prop 8 and doma so this becomes settled law of the land and they do not have to deal with the schism inside their party and all the old guys who are culturally or religiously or for whatever reason resistant to marriage equality will no longer be holding office and will die off, i think is what josh says, and the republican party can move past this. >> well, it would take a brave republican in the meantime to move against the party on this with only 34% support in the republican party. and rand paul is not that brave republican. it's always fun to watch him torn between libertarianism and republicanism as he is on this thing, the libertarian view, of course, is that government should have nothing to do with religion in any way. they don't understand why the state would -- be issuing marriage licenses. but, you know, there he is. stuck defending the republican position. and -- but ari, going forward, if the supreme court doesn't help out the republican party this way, how long would it take for there to be some beginning of peeling off of republicans from the p
common sense gun laws. you can be both. that's what we need right now. i, as a career prosecutor, have personally seen cases of police officers and innocent babies being killed by assault weapons. there is no reasonable basis for having those in our streets. i applaud senator klein. >> seeing the same sorts of urgeance we see in places like maryland and moving forward on gun control. the legislative politics on this are very different. the structure of the senate, two senators per state magnifying the influence of small, rural space and that makes gun control very difficult to get to 60 votes. all these ideas that you mention certainly background checks are national majority propositions in polling. it is a very different politics at the presidential level, not cost free for republicans to block all this in terms of how it positions the party for 2014, especially in some of these swing states. >> the democrats in red states. >> that's the thing, in red states it's a problem congressionally. at the national level, there is a presidential level majority for this in 2016. >> i've go
might want to see their sons marry a jewish daughter-in-law, but that doesn't mean that they are racist againsts black. >> michael: a new "washington post" poll out today show that 58% of americans now support same-sex marriage. will portman's change of heart help the gop attract more voters or will it be overshadowed by all of the backlash that we're hearing now. >> i think it is good for them in the sense that -- there is a great quote after the election where there was an unnamed gop consultant who said i'm sick and tired of the crazies making us look bad. so i think the more people they have that show they are not bigots and crazies, the better it is for them. >> michael: and they are not great at subtle, those republicans. they don't do suggestel well. dr. ben carson who criticized the president this year at this year's bipartisan prayer breakfast, electrified cpac this week when he hinted at a 2016 presidential run. >> you don't have to be a brain surgeon on rocket scientist to understand that if we continue to spin ours into oblivion w
changed that. gay marriage, he changed that up in new york. they went ahead and changed the laws on the guns. in colorado, they did it. they changed the gun laws. and so at this point, if we can't get the federal government to do it i mean, you know with the gerrymandering, we are not going to get anything until 2014 when we might be able to get some of these people out of the government, out of the federal government. hopefully rally the democrats to come back to the poles and actually --ls and actually -- i don't know what we can do about that. so at this point, you know, until 2014, you know, we are not going to be able to get these people out of the government to change these laws. >> bill: you make a lot of since, julie anne. first of all, it's clear. we do need a federal statute because not all the 50 states are ever going to ban the sale of these weapons. as long as they can be bought and sold in one state, then they will filter out and be able to get out into every other state. it's just the way gun trafficking works. in the meantime, the ch
